BSF ICT Contracts Awarded
Being the geek I am, I've spent all evening trying to find out who's been awarded a BSF contract for a managed ICT contract.
These are the ones I've found so far:
Now this is where you can all help - do you work in one of these LAs? Have I got the contract winner correct? Do you work in a different LA that has awarded a contract?
Bristol City of Northgate Information Solutions
Greenwich VT Education and Skills
Lancashire Redstone Communications
Leicester Northgate Information Solutions
Lewisham VT Education and Skills
Manchester Ramesys Limited
Newcastle upon Tyne Newcastle LA with Dell
South Tyneside Morse
Waltham Forest Ramesys Limited
Westminster Ramesys Limited
If you have any more info, send it to me in a PM - I'll update my list and keep the edugeek faithful up to date.

I hope to God it's not RM or Ramesys that win it for Salford

Hi Steve feel free to add it to edugeek wiki very useful..

It has been noted by a few people (including their rivals) that RM are usually only winning where they already have a significant presence. I will ask P4S if they have an easier list to manage ...

Is RM big enough to handle all those contracts, and the doubtless several more they are likely to win. I think RM can only manage all these by TUPing existing school staff aswell as working in partnership with the various LA IT depts

I may be wrong, but I though Northgate subcontracted to RM, so all Northgate schools will be CC3 as well?

TUPE is part & parcel of the managed services process, it gets the staff off the school/LA payroll while leaving the employer with a 'clear' conscience. In all the discussions I have had with people involved in the BSF process this has been openly discussed as part of the plan. I believe even those LAs who have managed to jointly bid with private companies intend to transfer staff from the school to the managed service provider, even if that turns out to be a different part of the LA.

Northgate for Kent Phaze 1

Northgate were bidding against RM here in Kent. RM themselves in their discussions said that if they won the system they put put in would NOT be either CC3 or ConnectFour but something else.

Yes Rm winning does not mean they will install cc3/cc4 depends on lea.
